A unique tomato topping for rice that doesn't use garlic. It has the wonderfully rich flavor of tarragon and is quick and easy to prepare. Goes well with grilled chicken or salmon.

This was very nice! I didn't have any vermouth so I used white wine. I served it over brown rice. Read More

I didn't alter this recipe at all except for serving the tomato mixture over pasta instead of rice but it really didn't have much flavor at all. It wasn't bad but this is not something I'll make again Read More

This has a nice flavor. It was easy to make. Ingredients are on hand so that makes it even easier. I didn't have any vermouth. So I used Gin instead. Ended up tasting okay to me. Read More

I followed this recipe to a T with the exception of adding a dash extra Vermouth and it wasn't good at all. The tomatoes were too overpowering. Perhaps using fresh tomatoes would be a better option but even that wouldn't help with the fact that there wasn't much else to the recipe. Read More
